NEW: Seeds-n-Stitches: October Haunting

Posted by dan_the_mailman Michigan (My Page) on

For October, we will be making haunted house blocks, one to trade, one to keep. The blocks will be 15 inches when finished. Please note that size change! You'll be able to include these blocks in the quilt we'll be making in 2013, or turn it into spooky wall-hangings for Halloween! To make these blocks, find your favorite house block either here online or in a book, and make it with dark, spooky fabric. Embellish them as you like, moons, bats, ghosts, ghouls, graveyards, etc. If your houses turn out a bit wonky and uneven, good for you! They'll look scarier that way...muhahahahhaaaaaaa!

Details of the swap:
BLOCK SIZE: 15" when finished
LAST DAY TO JOIN: September 30th
SEND-BY DATE: October 13th

Have fun with this one!

Sign me up! Though I'm all out of spooky, dark and gloomy fabric. This means a trip to Joann's is in order. Oh, DRAT!! :)

RE: NEW: Seeds-n-Stitches: October Haunting

what a great way to start our house block quilt! Sign me up!

hmmm, it's quiet in here. I'm tempted to post partners, but I'll wait a couple of more days for late joiners, and post partners on the 1st.

RE: NEW: Seeds-n-Stitches: October Haunting

Sorry I won't be joining for a while. I've got 2-3 quilts to make for Christmas, but first I have to clean out the garden. I think there are more weeds than flowers now, and I don't want to see that mess in the spring. And I still want to freeze tomatoes and squash for soup all winter. I bet the spooky houses are going to be adorable!

RE: NEW: Seeds-n-Stitches: October Haunting

Sounds like a lot going on Bev! Hopefully you'll be done in time to join us in January when we begin the village blocks!

Melissa and Linda send blocks to one another. I'm too sick to even think about when I'll be getting behind my sewing machine, so you two go ahead and trade blocks.

I'm going back to bed.

RE: NEW: Seeds-n-Stitches: October Haunting

Hope you figure out what's going on & feel better soon, Dan! Hate that you're sick. :(

Miss Linda, I still need to hit the store for some fabric, and not sure when I'll be able to do so. But I'll let you know when I've got your block done, hopefully it won't be too long!
